December 14 – Futsal Finally

December 14, 2018

Futsal will start this Sunday – December 16. The location, as in the past, is the Marion Cross School Gym in Norwich. Players will enter via the door toward the rear right of the school. The regular futsal time will be every Sunday from 3:00 to 4:00pm – we will occasionally (including this Sunday) have a ‘pre’ session (2:30 to 3:00pm) for those who are just getting going and want a bit of extra work. Off weeks for vacation periods/holidays/etc. will be announced here.

Futsal is an excellent opportunity for players hoping to improve their soccer skills. All you need is sneakers, shorts and a t-shirt. We’ll have an adult there every week to oversee the session. The sessions are available to all HHS players, regardless of your team level during the 2018 season. You don’t need to ‘join’ or make it every week; just be there when you’re looking for some fun – Coach Kennedy thinks futsal is a really good idea.

We’ll be looking to get an indication of potential attendance each week. To accomplish that, there is a Futsal Facebook group that should include all potential players (let Coach Kennedy know if you are not a member – dkennedy@dougkennedyadvisors.com)

See you on Sunday.

 

November 6 – State Champions!

November 6, 2018

The Varsity girls played tough and determined soccer on Sunday Nov 4 to defeat Milford and emerged as NHIAA Div. II State Champions. In a strong defensive effort, the girls held off a highly charged Milford attack for 80 minutes of regulation and 20 minutes of overtime. The girls then called upon their penalty kick special sauce to take the win 3-2 in the Penalties round . . . a great team effort.

The girls finished the season with an overall record of 15-3-2 and took their third state championship in the last five seasons.
